Gene Expression News and Research RSS Feed - Gene Expression News and Research

Gene Expression is the process by which a gene gets turned on in a cell to make RNA and proteins. Gene expression may be measured by looking at the RNA, or the protein made from the RNA, or what the protein does in a cell.

Regular consumption of dietary emulsifiers promotes colorectal cancer in mice

Regular consumption of dietary emulsifiers promotes colorectal cancer in mice

Emulsifiers, which are added to most processed foods to aid texture and extend shelf life, can alter intestinal bacteria in a manner that promotes intestinal inflammation and colorectal cancer, according to a new study. [More]

Vitamin B12 deficiency during pregnancy may predispose children to type-2 diabetes

B12 deficiency during pregnancy may predispose children to metabolic problems such as type-2 diabetes, according to research presented today at the Society for Endocrinology's annual Conference in Brighton. [More]
Genetic variation, environmental conditions can have significant impact on human health

Genetic variation, environmental conditions can have significant impact on human health

Scientists at the Wayne State University School of Medicine's Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics have shown for the first time the extent by which interactions between environmental exposures and genetic variation across individuals have a significant impact on human traits and diseases like diabetes, heart disease and obesity, strengthening the case for precision medicine initiatives.

Problems with nuclear membrane play role in leukemia, heart disease and aging disorders

Problems with nuclear membrane play role in leukemia, heart disease and aging disorders

We put things into a container to keep them organized and safe. In cells, the nucleus has a similar role: keeping DNA protected and intact within an enveloping membrane. [More]

Disrupted circadian rhythm may not help achieve maximum weight loss after bariatric surgery

Disrupted circadian rhythm may not help achieve maximum weight loss after bariatric surgery

A newly released basic science study of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) suggests that a functioning circadian clock, or sleeping at night and being awake during the day, can help patients achieve a higher amount of weight loss following the surgery. [More]
Combination treatment can reduce tumor's resistance to chemotherapy in ovarian cancer

Combination treatment can reduce tumor's resistance to chemotherapy in ovarian cancer

Treating ovarian cancer with platinum-based chemotherapy drugs such as cisplatin is initially very effective, with about four out of five patients responding favorably. However, most of these patients quickly become resistant to chemotherapy and may not respond as well to this standard treatment for the disease. [More]
Researchers identify protein linked to negative effects of senescence

Researchers identify protein linked to negative effects of senescence

Cellular senescence is a state in which normal healthy cells do not have the ability to divide. Senescence can occur when cancer-causing genes are activated in normal cells or when chemotherapy is used on cancer cells. [More]
